It should have been "You just managed to post sentences with more than
one lie in each one." If typos are all you got, you ain't got much, sport.

The UK isn't really a part of Europe. Another name for the UK is the USS
Aircraft Carrier Number One. Here on the *Continent*, many people are
switching to Linux and all the computer chains will install it for you
or sell you a desk or lap top with it preinstalled. It was featured on
local radio, TV and print. Andalusia and Extremadura are using Linux and
have compiled and designed it to their needs. They saved millions of
euros doing this.

Ten million users and growing isn't exactly "because they can't give it
away". Have you always been this ill informed?

Err... Last time I looked, it was part of Europe.

Microsoft may be selling Windows 7 to the continent without IE8 installed
and it will STILL outsell any other OS. It is so dominant in Europe, it can
afford to do that and it will STILL be the most dominant force in Europe.

Where you live in Spain, they haven't even got clean water there. You have
to buy it in bottles A backward country indeed.

The inclusion of IE8 (or exclusion) will have no bearing on Win 7
sales either way.

If the Bush Administration hadn't stopped prosecuting any and all
anti-trust cases the day they took office, it might be for sale the
same way over here.
